The origin of El Quartelejo has two likely possibilities. In 1664 a group of Puebloans left New Mexico and were later rounded up and brought back by the Spanish. They may have constructed El Quartelejo. It is more likely[according to whom?] that, after the collapse of the Pueblo Revolt (1680–1692), the Spanish reconquered New Mexican pueblos, and one group of Taos and Picuris people fled the area in 1696. They searched for a new home among the Plains Apache on the Great Plains.
